Subject: Here I come!
Grand tour of California here. A little history lesson is shown about how California grew from gold, and even that is interesting enough. It segues into a great natural exploration of Cali, from it's water, forests and mountains, to finally, the city. Apparently California just has one, San Francisco, and that's given a great profile here as well. A very very nice film. Highly Reccomended!
